Roma child, 12, brutally murdered [Update]

Police are investigating the brutal murder of a 12-year-old Roma child whose body was found near a Gypsy settlement in Vlycha, in southern Attica’s Megara district.

Police said the victim suffered multiple wounds to the stomach and neck caused by a sharp object, probably a knife.

“The perpetrator seems to have vented all of his hatred. The case appears complicated,” an unnamed police officer said.

Witnesses told police that the victim arrived at the settlement a few days earlier and had been staying with cousins.
